My friend and former colleague Julie Anne Genter, an expert in sustainable transport policy, won a seat in the New Zealand parliament on Saturday, with the Green Party.
Raised in Southern California, Julie will be the first US-NZ dual citizen to sit in the New Zealand parliament. More important, she has done superb work for our firm in sustainable transport policy across Australia and New Zealand, including as a leading exponent of Donald Shoup's work on parking pricing. (I featured one of her early videos on this topic here.)
While it appears she will be sitting in opposition, I know she'll be doing great work for New Zealand and beyond.
